The following is an excerpt from “JoeWill: BetterTogether” Art Exhibit Opens, an article by Indianapolis Monthly on April 7, 2023.

Mark and Jan Lawrance knew their identical twin sons had special talents when they saw the cartoon caricatures and 3-D sketches the boys were churning out in grade school. As Jan says, they were “just a little more advanced” than their classmates. Could mom be a bit biased? Absolutely. But it turns out she was right.

A new exhibit showcasing the extraordinary works of Joe and Will Lawrance opened Monday at the Indianapolis Art Center (IAC). JoeWill: BetterTogether features more than 100 pieces—paintings, sketches, sculptures, mixed media, and architectural drawings from the twins’ days at North Central High School through post-college.

The Lawrances, along with their daughters Devin and Erin, attended a private reception Saturday for family and friends.

“I was overwhelmed,” Mark says. “The way it was put together; the total was much greater than the sum of its parts.”
